Expelled opening weekend

Anybody have plans for some Expelled protesting? I'll be at our local hick movie theater with this shirt

and handing out "15 Answers to Creationist Nonsense" from Scientific American.

Is there anywhere Expelled is making a big showing? New Orleans has no theaters, Jefferson Parish has one in the boonies of Harahan and only one in the entirety of St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington, which is where we keep most of our fundies and godbots. Within 250 miles of my house, only 33 screens are showing it. Look at this:

That's a LOT of Gulf Coast Protestants being ignored. Maybe the producers are hoping for long lines, sell-outs and high per-screen numbers to boost their credibility.

Anyway, if you don't hear from me for a while, it's probably because I'll be somewhere recuperating from some of God's love to my face.

Wish me luck!

Good luck with your protesting. Let us know whether people are flooding or trickling into the theaters for this one. :) Also, let us know if they're coming in church buses or vans, etc. I'll expect at least one detailed report of your experiences. :)

The Scientific American article to which you linked is great. I've bookmarked it because I'm sure I'll have opportunities to go back to it again.

Hate to disappoint, but my wife injured her nack Friday, so I spent all weekend taking care of her. I did wear my shirt all day Sunday while I was out running all the weekend errands. I got lots of dirty looks but no one said anything. I was really irritated by the time I got home. :) I hate when I get my blood up and nothing happens.

I'll try again next weekend, if it hasn't been pulled. Maybe I should just stand outside a church handing out leaflets. OR... it's revival season. Oh, this could be dangerous.

Sounds like a plan to me. :)
